Stitch 97 in the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge is Feather and Chain stitch. As can be seen this stitch is a variation on both feather stitch and chain stitch combining to make a wonderful hybrid. This is a fun and interesting stitch as many of the variations of both chain stitch and feather stitch can be adapted to this stitch. It is one of those stitches that you can riff on with variations on variations to create interesting visual patterns. As Usual you can find a tutorial for Feather and Chain stitch in my Stitch Dictionary and on the same page there are links to both Chain stitch and feather stitch if you need a refresher.
